Educate, empower and equip your congregation when you host Recovery Sunday in your church.

"Christ is our recovery. He gives us the Word and each other as a support for that recovery...
Our having the answer to addiction and abuse is crucial and is the strengthening of the Church itself."

Pastor Cameron "Camy" Arnett, award-winning star in The Overcomer hit movie

Our Sixth Annual Recovery Sunday is...

  • A day on which churches host individual Recovery Sundays to join others across the nation in addressing the damage of addiction. 

  • Churches around the nation jointly showing compassion to the hurting and addicted on the same Sunday.

  • Pastors showing they want to help with one of the biggest problems in our neighborhoods. 

  • Believers supporting the hurting and addicted in their search for healing and freedom.
